FILM: Hitchcock/Truffaut

Reaching out to the master-of-suspense via fan letters, the young Truffaut managed to corral a very cordial and flattered Hitchcock to a sit down for eight days at Hitch’s offices at Universal Studios. This movie, showing many great candid stills from that conversation as well as keeps a running commentary of the actual interview from the notes is interspersed with current interviews about both filmmakers from Wes Anderson, Paul Schrader, Martin Scorsese, David Fincher, Arnaud Desplechin and Olivier Assayas.

Mike Oldfield: The Killing Fields (Original Film Soundtrack)

Mike Oldfield: The Killing Fields (Original Film Soundtrack)

It’s evident that these 19 songs are not built around Oldfield’s singular distinctive guitar orchestrating, nor anywhere close to his most famous mainstream movie music contribution, “Tubular Bells” (or any of the installments of that suite); this is a more studied and somber composer Oldfield writing specifically for a film (the first time he will ever do so actually) mining the high strings of orchestra sounds and letting simply melodies sweep in and out.

The Witches, Salem 1692 by Stacy Schiff

It is a thick historic read that Stacy Schiff flies us through in her The Witches, Salem 1692. If you think you know all about this period of history, have the skinny on the rumors and historic accounting, know full well what happened to a bunch of women (and men) way back in the early days of this country, think again.

Malcolm Gets and Matt McGrath you truly need to get your ass down to The Pershing Square Signature Center (as much for this limited off-Broadway engagement as to see The Pershing Square space!) and see this hour and almost one half one-act before it closes two days after Christmas.

THE SEX FILES: A Naughty Take on a Classic with Company XIV’s Snow White

Company XIV’s Off-Broadway, adult-themed world premiere of Snow White is unfolding down at the Minetta Lane Theatre. Once again this troupe of daring dancers, singers, acrobats and actors present a wholly lush take on a classic (I caught them in their Nutcracker Rouge extravaganza a few years back, see here http://www.shortandsweetnyc.com/2013/12/nutcracker-rouge-the-minetta-lane-theatre/). Revealing a show once again conceived, directed and choreographed by Drama Desk Award nominee Austin McCormick, this version of the classic fairy tale bares (and “bares” is the right word here) very little relation to anything Disney ever attempted and is sure to leave you breathless.
